Fee paying places

Most postgraduate students in Australia have a fee paying place in their course, and will pay the full cost of their tuition, however if you are a CSU Alumni Student, you will receive a 10% discount.

You can pay your fees by:

  • deferring your payment via a FEE-HELP loan through the Australian Government
  • making full payment directly to the University.

If there is a direct connection between your study and work you may be able to claim your tuition fees as a tax deduction. For further guidance please seek independent advice or visit www.ato.gov.au.

FEE-HELP loans at a glance:

  • defer part or all of your fees
  • only start repayments when you earn above the threshold set by the government
